Abstract: The characteristics of flame rotation induced by a fire at the top of kitchen stove were studied numerically with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Four cases with different locations of fire sources and vents were set up; simulations of swirling air flow and temperature distributions in the kitchen room were carried out. Ventilation by ceiling vents was identified as the necessary condition for internal fire whirl. Recommendations on the design of kitchen ventilation system were made.
